MS Access 2010 Reports - What is the tab at the top

Hi Experts,

What is the tab at the top and how can one change it?

If I open in Design View it shows the name of the report

If I open in "Report View" it shows the name of the Record Source

If I open in "Print View" it shows the name of the record Source.

Thanks for any help.

Put the report into design view and open the properties dialog.  On the Format tab, change the Caption property.  Whatever is here will be displayed in preview mode.

you can change the information for  "Report View" and "Print View"
using the Caption property in the design view of the report.
Post images just to be certain we're on the same page, but...
I suspect what you are seeing is the result of the Report's Caption property being blank.
Muck with that and see what you get.
It's a good property to set in the Report's Open event, anyway.
The caption become the value on the tab in Print Preview
it becomes the filename when you save as PDF
And it becomes the name of the print job in the view of the Printer queue if you 'See what's printing' for a particular printer.

I set it in the Report Open() event based on either OpenArgs or a value from a form
